Marcas Contemporary Art gallery in Santa Ana, CA is currently showing conceptual new pieces from their growing roster of fine artists. “Pardon My French”, curated by local artist Tomi Monstre, is designed to create a single narrative through a variety of styles, which incorporate painting, photography, sculpture, and paper-cut works. This includes dreamy contributions shown below by sculptor Gosia, Christine Wu, Stephanie Inagaki, Korin Faught, Tara McPherson, Polly Pardo, Danni Shinya Luo, and others. They are donating a portion of their sales to the organization Inspire Artistic Minds, which provides scholarships and education to advance the arts in the areas of taste, sight and sound, with a focus on the food industry. Marcas Contemporary is a gallery that is progressively curating exhibitions with their free thinking and loose themes. As as a cohesive statement, “Pardon My French” contains elements of mystery and dark Surrealism, as in the religious iconography of Jasmine Worth’s art, femininity and grace in figurative works by Korin Faught and Christine Wu. There is irony in the show title, as this is a collection of artists who make no excuses for their bold voices.
“Pardon My French” is on display at Marcas Contemporary Art through November 30th, 2014.
